The death of a loved one can trigger atrial fibrillation (AF), or irregular heartbeat, can be potentially life-threatening, according to a recent study.
Researchers from the University of Denmark released data very surprising based on their study of 88 162 patients diagnosed with AF in 1995 and 2014 and the risk of heart beat (palpitations). Among the patients, 17 478 people have lost their significant others.
Risks that are generally peak during the "8-14 days after losing people in love, then gradually decline," A study published in the online journal Open Heart.
